You just sound like a computer "hipster" to me. Come crack open a PBR with me and relax
Your mashup of what would also be considered old (social networking) and new (Win 8)
I can see a government viewing this as a way to probe mail security. Imagine if I'd sent the same video box to my Senator; maybe even with a GPS unit inside and broadcast ability. That would allow me to figure out how Congressional mail is sorted and secured. They wouldn't be happy about that.
I imagine you'd know where the most strategic place to bomb the mail sorters is, because i'ts not going any further then that.
What do so many Americans have such fear/hatred of Socialism?
Because we like to think we deserve to use the money we earn in the way we choose.
From what I have observed from my countrymen this is correct, and until we change the way we view each other we don't deserve better.
I've seen this news elsewhere and Slashdot was the first place to call it a science experiment. I guess it could be, in the same sense as a Diet Coke & Mentos experiment or an "effects of flour on your best friend's head" experiment.
What's being done to her is completely ridiculous and she deserves nothing more than maybe a nasty look and a mild talking-to, but let's not stoop to yellow geek journalism
She mixed compounds together to observe the reaction. What about that doesn't sound like a science experiment?
I had the same thought. I'm sure they pay out of the nose for these package, why not insist they be customized to the preferences of the astronauts going on the trip?
A good rule of them for going into a dangerous environment is to get as much shit done as you can outside of it. If things are so strange up there that it's best to precook all your food I think premixing your flavored beverages is worth the effort to.
That's called 'transfer of firearm' and is illegal in many places thanks to our politicians. Creating technology to circumvent the law sounds like a sticky place to go.
I don't use MSE to protect my PC from 0 day exploits. I don't consider my online behavior to be that risky, and so far that assumption has held true. MSE is there mainly for the random drive-by attacks that can still happen. Better 0 day detection also results in more false positives, and this is definitely something I don't want when I'm not even engaging in risky behavior to begin with.
Having worked as a shop tech for years my rule of thumb has been that if it's a single user PC and they are a responsible person MSE is sufficient. If the PC is shared, especially with children, teens, or roommates, you should probably purchase a retail product that is more proactive.
That would be very funny. You'd have to past a drug test to be the Pot Czar. =)
I live a state over (Idaho) so this whole process has been on the local news a lot. Applicants cannot have any history at all of illegal drug use, so I wouldn't be surprised if (initial at least) drug screening is required.
